Colorado Adventure 2009 | Day 6
Thursday, August 6, 2009
Day 6 of the adventure brought me to Breckenridge, where I headed out of town bright and early on Tiger Road and made my way up to Georgia Pass.
Headed back down to the highway
After making it back down to US 285, I hung a left and headed over Kenosha Pass to check out another trail I had really been looking forward to on this trip: Red Cone. I really enjoyed this trail. The trail and scenery were amazing. The skies were pretty cloudy this day, so the conditions weren’t ideal for photographs, but that just means I’ll have to head back another time 😉 I did end up taking a bunch of photos anyways…
Red Cone open, but Webster Pass still closed

Made it down to Webster Pass
I should mention, that the trail down from Red Cone to Webster Pass is one-way only, because it is so steep.

From Webster Pass I headed down towards Montezuma
